Help: Weapon flamberge.txt

FLAMBERGE (long blade) ============================= Weight: ~7 kg Rank(s): 1st row A flame-bladed sword or wave-bladed sword has a characteristicly undulating style of blade. The wave in the blade is often considered to contribute a flame-like quality to the appearance of a sword. While largely decorative, some attributes of the waved blade might be useful in combat. Wielded by the biggest, burliest and sometimes most flamboyant troops, massive two-hand swords were used to break the opposing army's front line. Carried by selected soldiers, the two-hander would be rushed forward to break the heads off the enemy's pikes. Once the line was jumbled, its user could choke up his grip for close quarters thrusting and chopping by holding the ricasso. The flame blade, or "flamberge" probably does not cause more serious injuries than a normal blade, but certainly looks fearsome all the same. Hand forged, superbly tempered blade by Windlass Steelcrafts is complemented by a grip and ricasso, usually covered in leather. An average flamberge measures five to six feet in length and is balanced for two-handed use. Some skill(s) usable with the weapon: Decapitate, long blades and slash.
